Correct as the record spins the centrifugal force is still pulling the arm/needle to one side and anti-skate is required.

Get something like the hi-fi news test record to properly set anti-skate.

From memory that Rega arm you have does have an anti-skate control, don't quote me on this but I think it's that small silver lever thing under the Rega logo
